50 Shades of Violence
MADDOX- [Looks between #Urban and #Ever, alert as ever and standing up in their cribs holding onto the bars.] You guys want another story, huh?[Rubs the back of my neck] Well, I’m going to be honest… I’m not really prepared…[Thinking back to @Ashlyn_Lords and what she was reading last night.] But maybe I can take a story from Mama… Hold tight little ones. [Running back out of the nursery and back to mine and @Ashlyn_Lords’ bedside, I pick up the book on our night stand.]
ASHLYN- *watching you enter the room while I keep folding the twin´s clothes* What are you doing, love?
MADDOX- The twins want another story… I’m running out of ideas. [Picks up the book] Since you seem to like this so much, I thought the twins might like it too. [Looking at the cover… 50 Shades of Grey… really? Since when is a color so interesting?]
ASHLYN- *standing up and reaching out my hand, worried* That is not appropriate for the babies, Maddox. Give it to me, please.
MADDOX- [Pulling the book back.] What do you mean it’s not appropriate? [Flips through some of the pages]
ASHLYN- It is not for kids *looking at you, nervous of what you may catch in a glimpse*
MADDOX- [Stopping somewhere near the end and reading a passage involving a belt, eyes going wide.] Ashlyn, what is this?
ASHLYN- *blushes bright red and walks to you, trying to take the book from your hands* It is about love, adults love
MADDOX- [Narrows my eyes at you] Love? This [points to the page where some girl named Ana is getting severely whipped with a belt.] This does not look like love to me… [Never would I violently lay a hand on my Beauty.] Is this what you want? Do you want this?
ASHLYN- *letting my hand fall and looking down, feeling completely embarrassed* It’s not like that… *looking up at you* No, that is not what I want. *taking my hand to your face, rubbing my thumb on your cheek* It is not what it looks like. *sighs*
MADDOX- [Frowns and continues reading. Ana is now crying and running away from this Christian guy.] Ashlyn, he made her cry! If you have another explanation for this, please tell me. This does not look like love. Unless… I’ve been doing it wrong?
ASHLYN- Because she is scared. *turning your face to look at me* It is just a book, love. *kissing your lips softly* You are not doing anything wrong. *sighs* I don’t know what to say, Maddox.
MADDOX- [Frowns after kissing you] Why would a male scare their woman? I mean, I must have scared you some. But never intentionally.
ASHLYN- I don’t think that was Christian intention either. It is just the way he is and he can’t be any other way. But I think Ana’s love can change him because she loves him unconditionally. *looks in your eyes, wanting to read your expression*
MADDOX- [Looks from you to the book, then back to you again. Deciding to flip through it some more.] Tell me more about them…
ASHLYN- *smiling warmly* Well, what do you want to know? *not finding words to explain their story, knowing this can be a touchy subject* All I can say is that Ana loves Christian *shrugs*
MADDOX- [Looking at another passage, brows furrowing in confusion] But, this Christian has a [looking for the word that was used] playroom? Why does he need a playroom?
ASHLYN- *giggles* The Red Room of Pain? *looks down* Because he likes to… let´s say, play with Ana.
MADDOX- But why does he need a room full of whips and chains to play? [Looking into your eyes] I’m just trying to understand, Beauty.
ASHLYN- Gosh! *trying to find the right words to explain* Because he finds pleasure in inflicting pain on others… *blushes*
MADDOX- [Eyes growing wide, registering your blush] You mean… THAT kind of pleasure? [Shakes my head] How??
ASHLYN- *blushing bright red, my cheeks warm up* This is new for me, Maddox. *shrugs* I am reading and he calls himself dominant and Ana is his submissive.
MADDOX- [Remembers back to when you were reading this last night] You had a smile on your face all night… Is there something you want to try? [Gulps] I don’t think I would make a good dominant… I don’t want to hurt you. Ever. [Cups your cheek]
ASHLYN- *shaking my head and feeling my cheeks burn* I don’t want to try any of that. I am not a submissive. *chuckles* I just find this…different and entertaining *nodding* Do you want to? *raising my eyebrow*
MADDOX- [Frowns looking at the book some more. My voice quiet.] I don’t like chains… It reminds me of…Of my curse. [Hangs my head]
ASHLYN- Oh no, love *taking the book from your hands and lifting your head from your chin* I’m sorry. We don’t have to do anything, it is just a book. *kissing your lips tenderly* You are just perfect *flashing you a bright smile*
MADDOX- [Pulling you tight into me for a hug, brushing my lips against your hair.] I love you, Beauty. Maybe you can read some of this to me some day so I can better understand it… But for now. [Pulls you onto my lap] The babies still want a story…
ASHLYN- *sitting in your lap, wrapping my arms around your neck* Do you want me to read that to you? *blushing, knowing that you haven’t read the worst parts of it* Maybe we can go with the babies and forget about this *smiling warmly to you*
MADDOX- [chuckles and wraps my arms around your waist, rising to take you to the nursery.] Whatever you say, Beauty. But I do think #Urban and #Ever are going to start a riot if they don’t get their story soon… [Kisses your lips and walks back to the twins’ room, settling you on my lap to get ready for story time.] #LordsOfBudapest #50ShadesOfViolence
